Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

I followed all the advice here. I am running on a 1.5Mbps DL/256Kbps UL connection. Here are my current settings:

Max Downloads: 12
Download Bandwidth: 100%
Upload Bandwidth: 26.69KBps
Uploads Per Person: 2
Max Upload Slots: 3

I am downloading consistently between 30-50KBps. I'm wondering if this is the best i can hope for, or can i improve my DL speed even more?

You can hope for a little more: increase a little the number of simultaneous downloads (namely do step f) ) and do the download test by choosing a file that is relatively popular and (preferably) hosted by T3 or Higher connection(s) (because they can upload like crazy. However be careful to download a file that you know for sure doesn't contain malware)

Default Upload speed with a router

Ok, so if, for example, my upload bandwidth is 256, then I should set my upload speed to about 27.

What if I have a cable/DSL router with two computers attached, and both computers are running LW?

Should I halve that speed? To 13 or 14, since two computers are sharing my upload bandwidth?

First, if you have two comps, wouldn't it be better if just one ran LW?
And second, I think you should put a little less bandwidth for each since each comp because you'll be using twice the normal bandwidth dedicated to Gnutella messages (I'm not too sure since I have never used LW on two computers sharing the same connection)

We have two computers each running LW because there are two of us in this household, and we both like to download "our own type of stuff" from LW.

Normally it's not really a problem. I had both computers set up to upload at "maximum 100%" and we both can, and do upload pretty well. We can both download pretty well too, but I wanted to tweak the settings to maximize performance and results.

It seems like we can both upload on average at about 20K, so I'm leery about setting it lower than that.

I originally came to this thread because I've been having problems with large files starting out fast, slowing down, reaching 99% and refusing to complete, but I think it may be a separate issue.

Thumbs up

Hello there Murasame,

I've been looking at you posts about configuring LW. They have been very helpful up to a point (not your fault though, I'm just having a few probs with somethings) Wondered if you could help.

#1. maximum simultaneous d/loads:- I set this at 5. Mixing it up with maximum d/loads you can perform. (Any ideas how many I should start with. I know you say to play about, lather rinse as required but even some audio files are messing about at 4 - 6 kB/s, it used to be quicker until I started tweaking stuff....lol)

#2. Bits and bytes arggghhh!!! (Really got lost when you and Morgwen started discussing the difference between the 2 and decimal and binaries ) I managed to do my upload speed as per your instructions 256/8 =32-5-27kb/s. But obvioulsly I can't do this with download cos that would end up 59. I'm really sorry but I'm getting to thinking if I can't get one of these things right I'll never get any of them right.

Please don't think that I've came straight here and couldn't even be bothered to read any stuff cos I haven't (I saw you said that to musicguy2005 so that proves I've been reading....lol.....)

I know I shouldn't set the max simultaneous d/loads straight to 100 but is it ok to start with more that 5??

Thanks very much for all your help,

Lindy

So your dld bandwidth is 512Kbps? Then 59KBps is good. And I think you can start experiencing directly at over 10 simultaneous dlds.

Thanks for the reply,

But I can't put my dld bandwith to 59KBps though can I (lol.....I'll answer that no I can't). So if I'm using 27KBps for upload how much for dld.

I know you've probably already answered this but I'm really just not getting it, sorry.

Regards, Lindy

If you're talking about the dld bandwidth meter thingy they added in the latest releases, I never really bothered with it (it can't go high enough so I just left it to unlimited)

Hee hee nice one Murasame,

That's exactly what I meant. My B/F knows even less about this stuff than I do but he said put it on 100%, but I wasn't sure I should.

I have been on this computer for about 11hrs out of the last 23hrs.
I realise now that it's unfair just to come straight on here and expect ppl just to answer your questions without having looked at other threads first.

I actually think I've learned more using the search because I've read lots of different things. If I had just asked a question and got the answer I wouldn't have learned so much.

Many thanks, Lindy x
